    Hammam Bouquet. Has a lovely rich rose/powdery drydown which becomes quite addictive.

    Amouage Gold is a very powdery & potent frag. Silver Cologne (which I own and like quite a bit) is also powdery, although not as much as Gold and is the more subtle of the 2.

    It's unisex, but Hermes Hiris is very powdery. I'll third the Prada Amber recommendation (great fragrance), and add Prada Infusion d'Homme.

    I suggest:

    Burberry Brit, Dior Homme and Fleur du Male (are masterpieces)
    The coumarin in Fleur du Male is powdey.

    Dior Homme (Powdery Combination = Iris, Cocoa, Amber)

    Burberry Brit (Powdery Combination = Rose, Tonka Bean)

    I do not find Dior Homme, Heritage, BdP or Aramis to be particularly powdery

    Powedery fragrances:

    Hamma Bouquet,
    No. 89 Floris
    Aqua di Parma colonia,
    Burberry Brit,
    Ziznine Fragonard
    Caron PH

    Habit Rouge EDT can be powdery.

    to reiterate the suggestion of a few others: BURBERRY BRIT. It's powder in a bottle--in a good way.

    Fleur du male "cologne version" is even more powdery, if that's what you're into.

    Montale's Blue Amber is an EXPLOSION of powdery notes!!!!! I do not like powdery fragrances and this is the most aggressively and finely done powder scent there is.

    My classic definition of powdery colognes is Boucheron's Jaipur...Vibert lead with it & I'm seconding it.

    The best powdery scents, IMHO:

    Creed Bois Du Portugal: Old school masculine powdery woods
    Cartier Eau De Cartier Concentree: uber powdered laundry soap
    Amouage Reflection: new school pleasant powdery clouds

    Hey Guys! Many thanks for this alluvium of recommendations, I’ll certainly try some of the suggestions. Definitively the BB community is getting big and very active, and I am very pleased with that fact.

    Now let me share with you those “powdery” fragrances that I am actually using:

    Opus 1870 (smooth powdery)
    Habit Rouge (the powdery that I like)
    Chevalier d’Orsay (old powdery feeling)
    Nostalgia (sometimes powdery)
    Santal Noble (not too powdery)
    Racquets (?)

    I find Helmut Lang in any concentration to be powdery.

    Also agree with Dior Homme and Prada Infusion d'Iris or Infusion d'Homme. Prada Amber smells like grape soda to me.
